Many ultrashort laser pulse measurement schemes such as frequency-resolved optical gating (FROG), interferometric FROG, dispersion scan, or time-domain ptychography require a specific, iterative algorithm to retrieve pulse amplitude and phase from the measurement. In this work, we present a common pulse retrieval algorithm (COPRA) that can be applied on a broad class of measurements, including but not limited to the aforementioned ones. It can also be universally applied to measurements for which no specific retrieval algorithm was known before. We test our approach on numerical and experimental data and show that it is reliable and accurate in the presence of Gaussian measurement noise. Furthermore, we discuss how to obtain reliable uncertainty estimates on the retrieved pulses.
